Advocacy North East needs you!
Would you like to help and support people in need? We give our clients a voice if they are having an issue with social or health services.
All advocates complete our four day training course (two days a week over two weeks) covering such aspects as communication skills, diversity and equality, negotiation skills and self-awareness.
Our volunteer community advocates are supported with regular one-to-one meetings and quarterly peer group support. Once you have joined our team of advocates, we offer frequent on-going training opportunities so you can continue to develop your skills.
If you would like a rewarding and interesting voluntary position, Advocacy North East could be for you! The majority of our volunteers work with us for many years. The reason? They are fulfilled in their advocacy role and very much appreciated for what they do.
Advocacy North East was awarded Volunteer Friendly Award in 2012 and have successfully sustained, year on year, the level
of volunteer support to maintain the award.
